The X Factor is this close to announcing the two new hosts for the reality competition's second season, and the show's producers have narrowed the list of contenders down to seven or eight names, a network insider exclusively confirms to E! News.
On the female side, other names in the running include Rocsi Diaz, host of BET's 106 & Park, and Chrissy Teigen, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and John Legend's girlfriend.
Glee star Kevin McHale, Extra host Mario Lopez and former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu, who was in the running for the gig in season one, are all competing with Jonas to replace Steve Jones as the male host of the Fox show.
McHale recently cohosted the Teen Choice Awards with new X Factor judge Demi Lovato, which was said to be an audition of sorts for the hosting job.
